Coconut butter contains high levels of antioxidants and small fatty acid molecules that penetrate deep into the skin.

It can also help with various skin conditions such as acne, mycosis, keratosis, dermatitis and psoriasis, and to speed up the healing of wounds and burns.
Almond oil is known for being one of the best nourishing oils. It is suitable for all skin types, including delicate baby skin. Rich in vitamins, it soothes the skin and relieves skin inflammation, reducing itching and irritation caused by dermatitis, psoriasis or eczema. Almond oil cleanses, softens and promotes the repair of dry, irritated or cracked skin, as well as protects the skin from harmful factors (antioxidative vitamins A and E). It also increases elasticity and revitalises, nourishes and moisturises dry skin on the knees, heels and elbows. Since biblical times, almond oil has been highly valued and widely used for medicinal, nutritional and cosmetic purposes.
Sunflower oil is extremely rich in vitamin E, containing a larger amount in comparison to almond oil or shea butter. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that protects the skin from sun damage and from drying out, smoothes the complexion and prevents the formation of wrinkles. In addition to vitamin E, sunflower oil also contains vitamins A, C and D, as well as beta-carotene – essential ingredients for beautiful and healthy skin. In fact, it is truly underrated among oils, as it is sunflower oil that absorbs most easily into the skin, hydrating it deeply without leaving a greasy layer that clogs the pores and prevents the skin from breathing. It is therefore ideal for all skin types.

Juniper is considered a natural disinfectant. It penetrates the skin and reaches the muscles quickly and is thus great for massaging tired muscles, rheumatic limbs and aching joints. Research has shown that a significant improvement may be noticeable after just a few days of application on joints. The same goes for injuries such as strained tendons and various swellings. The pain disappears in just one day, while bruises disappear in two. Juniper is also recommended for treating dermatitis, skin rashes, oily and acne-prone skin.
